Program Application

In line with other fellowships nationwide, we are currently transitioning to the ERAS application system as of the 2022-23 application cycle.  It is anticipated that applications will be able to be submitted to our fellowship program via ERAS as of 7/15/2021.  Please check back regularly for updates, and email  Amanda Wagner (wagne@musc.edu) with any further questions at this time.

The training period in addiction psychiatry is 12 months.
